Malanchabas or Malancha Niwas : Place where Guru Rabindranath Tagore Stayed in Tripura (1919)

Our taxi driver Sojol took us to this hillock to show us this structure. This bungalow stands adjacent to Kunjaban palace . It was originally a kaccha house where Tagore stayed during his visit in 1919. The permanent construction was later built and given the name of Malancha Niwas.

Sojol told us that this house attracts visitors from around the world because of its association with great poet

We had very little time in our hands so took some quick clicks.
This was the original kuttcha house, which is in ruins now. A view of both the structures together.
